From Conflict to Captivity

The plight of the Rohingya People is urgent! Persecution and statelessness are not the only oppression they face. As undocumented asylum seekers and refugees fleeing virtual ethnic cleansing in Rakhine State,which they call ‘Arakan State,’ in Myanmar, they face intense suffering in places where they hope to find safety and to live peacefully in freedom.

But, this is only a dream, which in most instances becomes a nightmare. Running from conflict and persecution only to end up in captivity in a foreign land where refugees are not accepted because they are poor, undocumented foreigners. It is a vicious circle for most who end up behind bars, with no exceptions made for young children, minors, old people or women, even pregnant women. Unprotected, they are vulnerable to the worst elements of society that poverty can bring; among the slum lords, there are flesh traders, the traffickers of human beings whose interest lie in profits from this illicit  and barbaric trade.

  1. Definitely consider what you said. Your favorite justification appeared to be the simplest factor to have in mind. I say to you, I certainly get irked even as other folks consider concerns that they just do not know about.
    You manage to hit the nail upon the head as neatly outlined, people can take a signal. Will probably be again to get more. Thank you

  3. “undocumented” refugees? Are you still ok with “undocumentation”?

    You wouldn’t dream of telling the Apache tribe who to include in their ethnic group. Why do you want to do it with the Rakhine tribe? Are you nostalgic for your white, colonialist privilege?

    1. I have edited out your vulgarity, but think that others should see your comment and make up their own minds about you.Do you really understand what you yourself are saying?? I wonder? For one thing I’m not white nor do I support any kind of imperialist, autocratic, dictatorship or totalitarian regime. Moreover, if you were genuinely concerned about ‘documentation’ you would understand that that is the obsession of governments nowadays, especially relating to immigration matters. The requirement for documentation is used as a means of selection and discrimination based on a variety of underlying reasons, that are hidden from the general public, whether citizen or foreigner. Hopefully, you will eventually realise that many grey areas and hidden agendas exist in matters of immigration. I speak from first hand experience. When one word among many makes you jump to conclusions, you lose the whole picture. I took my time to read your comment twice before responding, to make sure I didn’t do what you did – jump to a completely wrong assumption.
